LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Give Obama an October surprise

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

Now that the 2012 presidential campaign is in full swing, the talk of the inevitable Democratic Party “October surprise” against Republicans will heat up. However, Mitt Romney has his own October surprise for the Democrats, courtesy of President Obama.

On or about Oct. 15, millions of Americans will be receiving their health insurance packages for next year. Every one of these people will be reminded that their health insurance costs have skyrocketed since Obamacare was passed. Americans wanted lower health care costs. Instead, they have gotten a government takeover of the health care system. Mr. Obama has repeated at every opportunity the tired “under my plan, a family of four will save $2,500 year” line. But that family will actually get a large health insurance cost increase.

This November in the voting booth, every American who has health insurance should tell Mr. Obama how they feel about their health care costs under his plan.
